Summary: This is the single worst cell phone I've ever had the misfortune to own - I bought it reflexively without doing any serious product research after wearing out my Casio Boulder - a rugged-duty cell phone favored by those in active, physical lifestyles - firefighters, building contractors, etc, in demanding physical environments, with which I had been well pleased.
Summary: I love this phone. I got it some years ago when they first came out, but when I needed a second phone for business and went to buy another, Verizon no longer had them. I found it on ebay, and was delighted. It can stand up to a lot of hard use. The feature I like best about it--it shows the entire phone number of both incoming and outgoing calls so I can scan them easily, I don't have to scroll through each one to get the complete number.
Great phone, great reception, sturdy and waterproof

Summary: I've used this same model for nearly 5 years, hard use and it was still working, but front screen no longer lit up. Bought new one, synchronized the call list by bluetooth and it's perfect. Works great with bluetooth hands free.
Summary: This one replaces the Rock I had for 4 years and it wasn't charging anymore. I work in construction and need something rugged and the Rock fits my needs. I don't text or so anything fancy with my phones and this is great for me. Verizon no longer markets this phone so I found one on EBay. It is a little bulky and heavy but is built to take abuse.
Summary: 2nd gzone phone for my son. Washed it a couple times with no problems very durable phone perfect for those teenage boys that tend to break everything they touch. While the phone has a few handy features it is also not a phone he will be playing on during class.
Summary: I used to have a Droid Razr but I was tired of paying the extra money for a data plan I really didn't need. I decided to go back to a flip phone with no data plan, but I wanted a nice looking good phone, and this is it. It's tough, won't break and looks great. Only issue I have with it is if you aren't talking directly into the microphone, people cannot hear you.
Highly recommend for someone in need of a rugged phone.

Summary: I bought this product in order to have a rugged phone to use on the job. I am a small business owner running a farm. I like that it is waterproof and can take jolts. I had a RAZR Maxx previously and after breaking my second one during normal use on the farm, I decided to go back to a rugged flip phone. I still haven't used all the technology on it (pedometer, compass, star charts, etc.), but have checked them out. I do use a tablet for web, apps, etc.
Summary: This is a great rugged phone, like someone else has said in another review, the calender is a pain to set an alarm with, I mean you can do it, I don't have a problem but it is tedious and cumbersome to try and set an alarm. Another problem I have is the use of the alarm clock, it is very easy to shut it off/silent it by touching the outer touch screen.
